campaign on pause, but today, it was back to business on the trail. republican mitt romney argued that he would do a better job leading the country's economy. at his first step in wisconsin, president obama appealed for another term in office to finish the job he started. a short time ago, he was given the backing of new york's mayor michael bloomberg, who endorsed the president's citing specifically the issue of climate change. i ask the political reporter for the "washington post" what he would be watching out for. we're entering the portion of the campaign where i start to the people who run for president just have a different team than the rest of us -- different gene than the rest of us. >> there is no doubt about that, but this is an incredibly close election at this point. a lot of people predicted this a year ago, that it would be close, and they've got the election they anticipated. a handful of states will decide if the candid -- will decide it. candidates will be in and out of the state's multiple times. >> what can they actually do at this stage? barack obama, mitt romney, to
is a very conservative republican. he is running as the constitution candidate because he thinks mitt romney and the republicans are too liberal on immigration and other issues. how many votes will begin? i don't have a clue. he shows up in polls at 1% or 2%, but people tend to respond to polls more favorably to third-party candidates than they act on election day and it is behavior on election day that matters. if virginia turns out to be 10,000 votes between romney and obama and virgil goode its 25,000 votes, you could make the argument he might have cost mitt romney the state. but otherwise i doubt it. and there is a liberal candidate, jill stein, the green party candidate. i doubt she gets a very much support. >> a few minutes left with our guest larry sabato -- host: a few minutes left for our guests larry sabato. hi, rose. caller: i am so glad to get on to talk with you. i have issues if i could take a little time. it is called the koch brothers issues. there was a national geographic documentary and i am quoting a lot of it, where they were born and raised in russia and they inherited
victim and republican controlled senate. when you see these waves start to build. they said romney was winning the early vote by about six points that enormous shock. obama has claimed all along they would win the early vote. so obama will be in big trouble despite being a day or two presidential giving out a lot of money and going around being concerned. >> sean: i just hope people compare and contrast, this is not the same president in benghazi. we don't 6 a picture of the situation when the president was flying off to vegas. i'm not saying this is photo op or the president doesn't care. i'm sure he does. you are are right. photo-ops giving away money does not erase four years of a bad economy. it does not erase of the lies told in relationship to what happened in benghazi. >> the fact is the waters recede benghazi is still going to be here. >> sean: thanks for being with us. remember cindy sheehan, she was the face of iraq anti-war movement. why does it come to justice, ty woods and his fallen son they get silence. and go to our website for brand-new online extension to the show
states today. meanwhile, republicans are going ugly. mitt romney is trying everything he can to shake up the race. that is the real story of what is going on in the campaign now. romney's forces are responding to new polls showing president obama leading in swing states. up by six in iowa, up by five in ohio, and ahead in other key states, including new hampshire, be virginia, florida, wisconsin, colorado, and nevada. and today, a major endorsement coming from new york city's independent mayor michael bloomberg. no question, this is a close race but today in wisconsin the president went after one of the key points in governor romney's closing argument to voters. >> the closing weeks of this campaign, governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. and he is offering them change. he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. and what the governor is offering sure ain't change. >> it sure ain't change. but governor romney is good at changing on e

is one of i'd say two or three of the most effective republican surrogates the romney campaign had been using. somebody they had put out on their own. not quite the level of bill clinton for obama but not bad. you know. marco rubio and chris christie sort of are the two sort of stars that can get people on their own. and here he is with obama. i tell you, you see him -- here's another sort of fascinating thing to watch. the number of photographs that people asked to take with the two of them, and they kept taking them. what are they going to say? you have these people at the shelter or their homes and they're both emotional, upset, and excited to meet the president and the governor. and here they were posing for pictures together. the two of them. with constituents in new jersey too. that part of it was a little surreal, especially when i sort of remind myself that today's wednesday and election day is, i don't know, not even 200 hours away. >> an extraordinary day. chuck todd, thank you very much for joining us tonight. >> you got it. >>> across the river from new york city, hoboken, n
keep hearing people say that, that mitt romney and republicans, if the effort, if the recovery is going well, would say -- to say that michelle obama's not heaping praise on governor romney's time, his leadership in massachusetts, isn't that apples and oranges? those aren't the same thing. >> it actually is showing, though, the impact of all the praise that chris christie is heaping upon barack obama and him getting a political benefit from that. >> okay. >> more than just -- actually, probably the better comparison, tamron, is 9/11 after the 9/11 terrorist attacks where democrats and republicans rallied together around george w. bush who had been in the presidency just less than a year after winning a very hotly contested and contentious election. and the country coming together. and we're seeing that to a lesser extent right now play out on the east coast of new jersey and new york. >> thank you so much. i greatly appreciate -- go ahead, i'm sorry, keith, we're almost out of time, i'm sorry. >> i think it also shows the collapse of mitt romney's support mechanism in some ways. not tha
plans on surfing again as soon as he's healed. president obama and republican candidate mitt romney got their campaigns back in full swing today. they'll hit several key states as they try and shore up support with the election just five days away. president obama is in green bay wisconsin at this hour. he's on a 24-hour whirlwind tour. criss-crossing the country to campaign in the swing states of wisconsin, nevada, colorado and ohio. republican mitt romney is making three campaign stops in the swing state of virginia today. he told supporters the country's economic troubles will not improve under another term with president obama. congressman jesse jackson junior will not be released from the mayo clinic before election day. jackson has already voted by absentee ballot and has no plans for a public appearance on election night. jackson was recently re-admitted to the clinic for treatment of bi-polar disorder. he also suffers from gastro- intestinal problems. he has not campaigned since taking a medical leave of absence in june. next we go live to the new york stock exchange. how some f
beach on the jersey shore. coming up, spin game from the republicans. romney's expanding the map, he says, advertising now in tv in michigan and pennsylvania and forcing team obama, the other side, to play defense. from the democrats, romney can't find the votes for the battleground states, so he's throwing wild passes where he can't win. the new polls out today suggest the democrats are right, this is a distraction, not a reality. also, that romney jeep advertisement we told you about yesterday was so dishonest, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonesty, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word on it! >> well, in case you missed that, it's a spoof, sort of, and it's in the "sideshow." joe isuzu
that candidate romney is willing to drop that ad. >> i think it's not representative of the republican party. how i'm going to finish answering the question is that what's happening is democrats and president obama are doing a trumped-up war on women. they started it up in majority of. march. women are smarter than that. romney is tied 47% with obama about the vote. this is about our pocketbooks and bank accounts and jobs and women has been effected with the jobless rate under president obama and that's what it's about. it's not working. >> i don't think it's funniy at all. it's not funny because we are not going to fall for it in the end. women were told that the reason why republicans wanted to get into congress is because they wanted to do something about the debt. they got in there and immediately attacked the plan on parenthood. they passed 26 laws in hundreds of states. they have here a woman who is attacked, called a slut for wanting access to contraception and a candidate that just said, i wouldn't phrased it that way. exactly how would he have phrased it? >> that's a false narrative. >>
. >> the next president of the united states governor mitt romney. >> christie is one of mitt romney's most outspoken supporters on the trail picked to give the keynote address at the republican national convention. >> real leaders don't follow polls. real leaders change polls. >> if history teaches us anything, it's that some things are bigger than politics. in washington i'm terry dun ham. >> it seems republican nominee mitt romney is softening the attacks on his opponent. yesterday romney held three rallies in florida but did not mention president obama's name at all. while romney was in florida, obama was in new jersey touring storm damage there and romney is now getting ready to kick off the final days of campaigning. while the election is a big deal for the future of our country, no doubt about it, we have certainly seen the campaigning mode for a whole lot of other issues, and it's probably fair to say that some of you are ready for the election to be over. if you're one of those people you're not alone. we want to show you what happened to a girl, 4 years old, when she heard the ele

a lot. i know a lot of republicans had hoped governor romney wouldn't have to be spending time in florida or virginia at this point. he could be focusing more on ohio and the pickup states. president obama, that map is a little bit misleading. where he's really spending all of his time in the last three days is in wisconsin, in iowa, and in ohio. >> can he win with wisconsin, iowa, virginia, and florida? >> clearly, he will win with all those. he could win without some of those things as long as he holds onto wisconsin and iowa he could lose a bunch of other states. that's his firewall. he's spending a bunch of time in the firewall states like nevada and wisconsin and iowa. that's the way that he holds on even if romney somehow runs the table in florida, virginia, and ohio. if he can hold those other states, he can still win. >> chuck, you go along with that? >> i do. >> we need virginia and florida? >> i have been trying -- the sunday romney schedule had been in the dark. they had set it up. here is the sunday schedule. we just got it. iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia. n
remarks he made about disaster relief funding. at a republican primary debate last year romney down played the federal government's role in disaster response. >> every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states that's the right direction. it can go further and send it back to the private sector that's even better. >> with the campaign in its final days and superstorm sandy dominating the headlines, it could pounce for the president's campaign. >> it's tailor made for a campaign ad even though politics have been off the table the last several days i wouldn't be surprised to see an outside group on the democratic side come out and say if not directly the obama campaign itself. >> on wednesday romney issue ad statement in which he said fema played a key role during times of disaster. as president i will ensure fema has the funding it need to fulfill its mission while directing maximum resources to the first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need because states and localities are in the best position to get aid to the in
, someone who is a republican, former republican governor, and certainly a surrogate for the romney campaign, but harsh words, especially given what the president was doing yesterday. >> yeah, i think that's true. and governor bush has not been the most hot eyed partisan among significant republican players in the past. this that is all hands on deck moment where surrogates are asked to do this kind of stuff. i thought the most unhelpful thing from the romney standpoint in that common, which not the harshness in terms of president obama you want to talk about george w. bush? that really for swing voters, undecided voters you want the image -- >> to remind them of hurricane katrina, bush? >> it's not effective surrogacy, apart -- forget about the harshness. >> romney was nastier to bush in the debate than obama was. >> by the way, jeb bush, the whole uniting at this time? jeb bush, maybe one of his -- >> craig fugate a republican would not work for george w. bush after katrina. but when obama called him he said yes because they were serious about professionalizing -- >> there's the door. >> t
side and then on the republican side you have mitt romney collecting rice crispies for people -- i don't know if you read the statement that red cross put out, after it reluctantly collected all of the stuff he purchased in ohio but it basically said something along the lines of we thank the romney campaign with all of the crap they gave us. if you would like to help us like the obama campaign please second money. >> stephanie: yeah it's the one time he can't do the republican destruction thing because this is a real emergency. >> that's what mitt romney's friends at the daily caller are working on doing for them is getting the politics back on schedule here. >> stephanie: right. let's dive into the right-wing world. charles hurt. >> the one part of the economy that the president has sort of out toed is the massive bailout of the auto industry and if you listen to the ad of romney in ohio, it almost sounds like president obama is running for president of the auto industry as opposed to president of the united states. >> what? >> stephanie: hum. >> that is ana
tolerate bureaucrac >> woodruff: meanwhile, republican mitt romney returned to the campaign trail today with three events in florida. the g.o.p. presidential nominee also mentioned the ongoing recovery in the northeast. >> this is... this is quite a time for the country, as you know. we're... we're going through trauma in a major part of the country, a kind of trauma you've experienced here in florida more than once. and... and it's interesting to see how people come together in a circumstance like this. we've seen folks from all over the country step forward and... and offer contributions. >> woodruff: bumps in the recovery were evident in new y late today, where the public, bellevue hospital , started evacuating about 500rk patients because of deteriorating conditions. >> ifill: and for more on fill a short time ago governor cuomo said laguardia area will open for flights tomorrow morning. today's developments, we're joined again tonight by warren levinson of the associated press. he's been making his way around new york city today, and is just back from a trip to the evacuated bellev
celebrity, and they showed the same vote for mitt romney campaign video from the republican convention, but they just changed the name of the event. they called it a storm relief event, instead of calling it a victory rally. the one thing they changed materially about the campaign rally in order to make people call it a storm relief event is that they asked people to bring canned goods and groceries as donations to the red cross. one of the problems with this, as we talked about on last night's show, is that that's not actually the right way to donate to the red cross. i mean, the desire to give groceries and canned goods at the time of a natural disaster comes from the right place, it is a nice impulse, but unless you're specifically requested by relief agencies or public officials to do that, donating canned goods and groceries is just not logistically helpful,s on a large scale and from across country, especially if you are a presidential candidate getting national press, implicitly telling the whole country this is the way to help, this is what everybody ought to be doing. i'm not
romney is going to win 55% in missouri this year. i think any respectable republican who did not put both feet in his mouth would have carried that race. we now think claire mccaskill has a lead to a large enough to survive the romney landslide in missouri. also, there is a libertarian on the ballot there. that percentage will surprise you. that's where a lot of republicans who will not support todd akin and will not support claire mccaskill will go, i think. that should enable claire mccaskill to hold received another six years. host: when you look at virginia, what will you be watching on election night? guest: i want to see -- you always watch the first votes to come in. and it varies from year to year. they come in from different places, so you have to know the history of each city and county and even the precincts, to know the results. i will look at the critical swing counties in northern virginia, loudoun county and prince william county. i will be looking at chesterfield, richmond, enrico. i want to see if he will get over 40%. if he's in the 30's in chesterfield, that's a bad sig
romney and others has been that he can't work across the aisle. that when republicans have tried to work with him, he's been too divisive. a lot of romney's final ads airing in swing states are about bipartisanship, saying he was a bipartisan governor and he'll be able to mend some of these divisions in washington. it is certainly true that this aim image of bipartisan nature helps these politician and reassures a lot of people it's possible. >> let me bring in the national press secretary for the obama campaign. ben, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> look, again, not suggesting that anything this president is doing is politically motivated, but it is the end of a campaign. he's getting high marks for his handling of the storm. there is also -- i think dana doesn't think so, but there are some people suggesting there is still potential for problems. we're seeing very long lines for gas, people are who are getting desperate in places like hoboken. let me play the mayor for you. >> we need more food. we need more resources. so anyone who's listening to this in the city of hoboken or
battlegrounds. mitt romney spends his entire in virginia, state that republicans are desperate to win. >> this is a critical place for us. five more days. >> the latest abc news poll shows a dead heat nationally. both sides claim to be winning in the battleground. president obama is a head its three poles in the most critical ones. president obama is working to shore up his midwest firewall. ohio, wisconsin, iowa will see a attention from him over the next five days. in virginia today. yesterday he spent all day in florida. both states he absolutely must order to get to the white house. neither side can say for sure the impact sandy has had on the race. past today's, was on the trail talking bipartisanship while obama had the op showing it republicanrsey christie, one of romney's biggest allies. obama got high marks for his handling of the storm in poll.test >> a great guy, very had governor whitman. -- with him. >> the next five days will be campaigning, and intense sprint to the finish line. stay with us abc 7 for the comprehensive coverage of the race for the white house. at 12:30

on a republican line. what do you think? caller: i think governor romney would reach across the aisle. president obama definitely has not ever reached across the aisle. he pushed his obamacare through without any thought of what the people of america wanted. he is limiting health care for the older people. he is trying to pretend he really cares about people by going to these flooded areas, and that is not going to wipe out his record of working against the people of america. host: on our independent line, gabriel. caller: i think that overall, the party that would be most willing to compromise and come to a situation no room and discuss the politics that we need to be discussing past to be the democratic party. there are a lot of things that i do not support about the democrats and the republicans. i think overall that in order to get the things done that we need to have done, there must be a balance, there must be an approach to handle and organize our priorities correctly. i think the democrats are going to be the best representation of it. i was undecided. seeing what happened and the leader
the republicans crying for days after that. if romney wins the popular vote. >> eric: your number is big. >> kimberly: how do you get to that map -- >> dana: one thing that ed henry talked about the campaigns are going. three places that obama is not going. north carolina, florida, only one stop in virginia. they are worried about ohio. >> bob: having done campaigns before, the last thing you do now is schedule people. the schedule is the only thing to hold and get out the vote. >> dana: i was sorryed he went to boulder, colorado. are you worried about that? >> bob: hold down the vote. >> eric: what are the three states if obama loses any one of them axelrod has to change -- >> dana: minnesota, michigan, pennsylvania. >> eric: wisconsin? >> bob: pennsylvania. >> eric: all right. if romney wins one of those three i'll grow a mustache. >> dana: in your high school yearbook photo. >> kimberly: that could be will ferrell anchor man. >> greg: that is just going to tickle. >> eric: can i clarify that. if he doesn't win one of those. i say he has to win one of those. if he wins one of those, he
around the republican nominee as we close in on the election day. mr. romney has been spending a tremendous amount of time in the last couple of days talking about his desire to be a bipartisan president, reach across the aisle and deal with democrats to meet the challenge that nation faces, challenges he argues that mr. obama has not been able to meet and been too partisan and unwilling to meet with republicans on it. in the event in richmond, he singled out the house leader eric cantor and asked when is the last time you met with the president? cantor said it was a year ago. romney said i will not do that. i will meet often with the democrats and create the type of bipartisan agreements that move the country forward. he is making the argument that it's time for big change. borrowed rhetoric from the 2008 obama campaign that he says the president hasn't stuck to. he will wrap up the third event in virginia beach, virginia today. fully ten more battleground states that he plans to visit between now and tuesday night. he will wrap it up with a big speech in new hampshire, where
obama is inching ahead here? >> it is. and you're already hearing republicans hint that if mitt romney loses, that he'll blame the storm. the people around him will cite that as a cause, that they had momentum. but it stopped cold. and i can tell you that here in washington, those elites that mark halperin is talking about, when they see this expand-the-map effort by republican campaign by republican super pacs, minnesota, pennsylvania, michigan, what they don't see is confidence. what they see is an effort to conjure a momentum narrative, to keep that going. i think we're going to see the romney campaign double down even more on that. but more out of confidence, it comes from trepidation about ohio. republican elites starting to ask, are those really a series of hail marys because they think ohio isn't in the cards. >> i'm hearing the same thing. same strategy as far as let's look like we're really going and it was a desperation move. >> and there are so undecideds at this point, fife days out. is it too much to say that the cake is baked? i'm not saying either way, but that the race
